Daycare Why Doggy Daycare At A Place for Paws?A Place for Paws offers a fully interactive Doggy Daycare where your dog can run, learn and play all day with other canine companions and enjoy the company and guidance of our Daycare staff.Sherman and Gabby with tug Most people have the same reaction when we mention our Doggy Daycare – Awww how cute!!! And we’ll be the first to admit, it is pretty darn cute to see how much fun our four-legged friends have at A Place for Paws. However, Doggy Daycare is so much more than just fun and games. The benefits run much deeper than that! Lots of Exercise Canine obesity and lack of fitness abounds lately. Boredom and lack of mental and physical exercise is a leading cause of problem behaviors. If your pet is in need of additional exercise for health or behavioral reasons, Doggy Daycare is a great place to start. Dogs in daycare spend at least half of their time being active. Dogs at home alone may spend less then 10% of their time awake. Daycare is good for your dog’s mind and body. Let Me Relax! Ever have a day where all you want to do when you get home is relax? Our daycare’s supervised play group offers dogs mental and physical stimulation, so your dog will go home tired and ready to relax with you. A tired dog makes a happy family! More Focused Training Whether you are currently bringing your dog to one of our training classes, taking One on One lessons or working with him at home, a day at doggy daycareCash and William can help you achieve the focus you need from an active dog. After daycare your dog will be tired and will have had his fill of play with other dogs. Plus after being separated from you, your dog will have missed you and will be ready to perform his best for you. Separation Anxiety Solution If your dog suffers from separation anxiety, or stress from being left alone, daycare may be part of the solution. Combined with behavioral counseling, Doggy Daycare can help to make your dog more independent. Your dog will never be alone at our daycare. Housebreaking Help If your dog is not housebroken and you need to be away longer then he can “hold it” (over 3 or 4 hours for young puppies), you are setting your dog up to fail. The more accidents you prevent, the quicker your dog will be housebroken. Again we can help! While you’re at work we will make sure your dog or puppy is outside as many times as needed to help build solid housebreaking habits. Get Outta The Way! Construction and home improvements can be stressful on the whole family including your dog. Your dog may be frightened or confused by the strange people, noises and smells. Instead of being underfoot, scared or trying to dash out the door, your dog could be playing with friends and getting lots of attention from our daycare staff. When you plan your next home improvement, also plan a trip to daycare for your dog! Keeping a Watchful Eye If your dog is recovering from surgery, you may feel uncomfortable leaving him home alone. We would be happy to have your recovering dog at daycare to keep an eye on him for you, and notify you if we feel there are any changes or concerns.
